Stamperscreek Township. Sec.5-T.1 N.-R.2 E. Seldom used but cared for

Located in the south west corner of the section, in a field, and marked by tall cedars. The land is part of a large tract entered by George Hinton in 1813. The families Hinton, Murphy, Rigney, and Copeland were related, and among the very early settlers in the county. William Rigney came from Surrey Co., N.C. He was born Aug.27/1768. He married Amariah Potter Sept.22/1791. She was born Nov.18/1772. Orange Co. probate records show that William died in 1821. They are probably buried here in unmarked graves, of which there are a few. The earliest marked grave is that of their son John who died in 1833. The present owner of the land is Mr. Arvie Jones. (1944).
